Sad to say there will be no game impressions or review from me this week. It was a case of depressed Monday, busy Tuesday, exhausted Wednesday, couldnít be arsed Thursday, write this up desperately Friday. Hopefully next week Iíll be back on track. In the meantime there is one little thing I want to promote related to Goldeneye
which might interest nostalgia addled buffoons like myself.
Iím certain many here will be familiar with the Nintendo 64′s Goldeneye
. Well now thereís a rather nice orchestral cover album produced by Rich Douglas
, a composer who is currently working on games like Lifeless Planet
and Shadowgate 25th Anniversary
. Itís pay what you want with a minimum price of $10.00. For that you get fifteen tracks remastered from Goldeneye
with a duration of just over forty minutes.
Staying true the originals the album retains the cold, industrial feel of the soundtrack, with the old exciting Bond theme mixed in for good measure. It features some of my personal favourites, including the Runway and Depot themes as well as some tracks I get the feel other remixes perhaps leave by the wayside.
Perhaps my only criticism of this is that there was some tracks that I would have wanted to see which were absent, such as the Cradle mission. At the end of the day thatís just a nitpick of whatís a fine album. What has been included is simply magificent.
You can pick up this cover album from Loudr.fm here
. Iíll remind you that itís pay as you want for a minimum price of $10.00. All of itís worth your time. Heck, if not for the soundtrack of the recently released Touhou 14
this cover album would have been the only music I listened to this week.
